aka <Mona Liza svetskog šaha>

„Frauen leiden mehr und länger an Niederlagen als Männer." Während diese sich ihren Verlust-Frust mit blöden Ausreden schnell von der Seele redeten, seien Frauen oft tagelang deprimiert. Deshalb hätten Frauen sogenannte Verlustserien weit häufiger als Männer, die in der Evolution früher gezwungen gewesen seien, Niederlagen schnell zu überwinden. Die jugoslawische Großmeisterin Milunka Lazarevic kommentiert derlei Beobachtungen: „Wir müssen einen Jahrhundert-Vorsprung aufholen."

Dec-01-08  brankat: A very sketchy games' record of M.Lazarevic in CG database.

During the 1960s, and up to about the mid 1970s Milunka Lazarevic was among the leading 5-6 women chessplayers in the world.

Happy Birthday Milunka!

Dec-01-08  refutor: <brankat> please submit some games! the chessgames database is very thin in the 1960s and 1970s outside of the best of the best...
Dec-02-08  brankat: <refutor> I'd love to be of help, but, frankly, the only database I use and rely on, is the one :-)
